Go to: The fires of Hell are real and eternal, Pope warns

I love to be given a choice.

Some people sometimes wonder what hell looks like.
Well, it is being stuck in an airplane just like this one for eternity.

@splats

Thanks for assuming that I only care about animals suffering and am a blind Wal-Mart consumer :-)

You have it wrong: I am concerned and try to do my best about everything I consume (most of the time). Of course I can't avoid having a negative impact on the environment and people in the world: I realize it and try to mitigate it as much as I can.
I am not really after claiming moral superiority or anything like that. I don't care, really.
I just see a low hanging fruit which is meat consumption and the dramatic impact it has on the environment. It seems like such an easy step to make a positive tangible change! (it probably has much more impact than driving a Prius or biking to work.)
Local responsible farming is definitely better than intense farming, I am not disagreeing with you. Eating less/no meat is even better.

I often hear the argument even if don't eat meat I am still responsible for suffering/polution and such. True, I agree. But my choice I believe makes a small difference regardless. It is not an all or nothing problem.

@Sciros

OK, you find the idea that vegetarianism will eventually prevail stupid.
In case you have not listened to the actual interview, that's what Singer and Dawkins argue at some point. (Loosely comparing it to slavery in the 19th century.)

And here is the UN report that says cattle already produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars:

I wonder how that is going to scale with the projected 9 billion people in 2050, when everyone in the world wants to eat their ribs and bacon just like you?
